2017 NCAA Men's XC Preview: #2 Syracuse & #1 Northern Arizona

Syracuse had storybook 2015 season. NAU has a storybook 2016 season. Which won will get the glory in 2017?

2017 NCAA Women's XC Preview: #2 New Mexico & #1 Colorado

Colorado choked away a national title chance last year but they've got a real good shot at winning in 2017, but a top heavy New Mexico team is going to be very hard to beat.

2017 NCAA Women's XC Preview: #4 Oregon & #3 Stanford

Reigning champ Oregon returns its top 2 from last year while Stanford returns nearly everyone and has a ton of new talent as well.

2017 NCAA Men's XC Preview: #4 BYU & #3 Arkansas

Believe it or not, Arkansas hasn't been on the podium since 2005 but that should change this year. BYU, which will be helped by super frosh Casey Clinger, likely will be there as well.

2017 NCAA Women's XC Preview: #6 NC State & #5 Michigan

NC State and Michigan both had fantastic 2016 campaigns - can they replicate that magic in 2017?

2017 NCAA Men's XC Preview: #6 Colorado & #5 Stanford

Colorado won back to back titles in 2013 and 2014 but we don't think they'll win this year and the same is true for Stanford which hasn't won since 2003.

2017 NCAA Men's XC Preview: #8 Oregon & #7 Wisconsin

It's really hard to predict how traditional powers Oregon and Wisconsin will do in 2017 as Oregon lost King Ches and Wisco may or may not redshirt their star Morgan McDonald.

2017 NCAA Women's XC Preview: #8 Penn State & #7 San Francisco

Can Penn State crack the top 10 for the first time since 1994? Will San Fran do even better than they did in 2017?

2017 NCAA Men's XC Preview: #10 Oklahoma State & #9 Iona

Iona and Oklahoma State almost always finish in the top 10 at NCAAs and we think they'll do so once again this year.

2017 NCAA Women's XC Preview: #10 Providence & #9 Arkansas

Traditional powers Arkansas and Providence had off years in 2016 but look poised to be in the top 10 once again in 2017.
